  • Detail Description
    SKU: MX400-HW Meraki MX400 Cloud Managed Security Appliance


    Cisco Meraki MX Security Appliances are ideal for organizations considering a Unified Threat Managment (UTM) solution, for distributed sites, campuses or datacenter VPN concentration. Since the MX is 100% cloud managed, installation and remote management is simple. The MX has a comprehensive suite of network services, eliminating the need for multiple appliances. These services include SD-WAN capabilities, application-based firewalling, content filtering, web search filtering, SNORT based intrusion detection and prevention, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), web caching, 4G cellular failover and more. Auto VPN and SD-WAN features are available on our hardware and virtual appliances, configurable in Amazon Web Services.


    • Application-aware traffic control: bandwidth policies for Layer 7 application types (e.g., block YouTube, prioritize Skype, throttle BitTorrent).
    • Content filtering: CIPA-compliant content filter, safe-seach enforcement
      (Google/Bing), and YouTube for Schools.
    • Intrusion prevention: PCI-compliant IPS sensor using industry-leading
      SNORT signature database from Cisco Sourcefire.
    • Advanced Malware Protection: file reputation-based protection engine powered by Cisco AMP.
    • Identity-based security policies and application management.


    • Unified firewall, switching, wireless LAN, and mobile device man- agement through an intuitive web-based dashboard.
    • Template based settings scale easily from small deployments to tens of thousands of devices.
    • Role-based administration, configurable email alerts for a variety of important events, and easily auditable change logs.
    • Summary reports with user, device, and application usage details archived in the cloud.

    Ironclad Security

    • The MX platform has an extensive suite of security features including IDS/IPS, content filtering, web search filtering, anti- malware, geo-IP based firewalling, IPsec VPN connectivity and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection, while providing the
      performance required for modern, bandwidth-intensive networks.
    • Layer 7 fingerprinting technology lets administrators identify unwanted content and applications and prevent recreational apps like BitTorrent from wasting precious bandwidth.
    • The integrated Cisco SNORT engine delivers superior intrusion prevention coverage, a key requirement for PCI 3.0 compliance. The MX also uses the Webroot BrightCloud URL categorization database for CIPA / IWF compliant content-filtering, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) engine for anti-malware, AMP Threat Grid Cloud, and MaxMind for geo-IP based security rules.
    • Best of all, these industry-leading Layer 7 security engines and signatures are always kept up-to-date via the cloud, simplifying network security management and providing peace of mind to IT administrators


    • Auto VPN: automatic VPN route generation using IKE/IPsec setup. Runs on physical MX appliances and as a virtual instance within the Amazon AWS cloud services.
    • SD-WAN with active / active VPN, policy-based-routing, dynamic VPN path selection and support for application-layer performance profiles to ensure prioritization of the applications types that matter
    • Interoperates with all IPsec VPN devices and services.
    • Automated MPLS to VPN failover within seconds of a connection failure
    • Client VPN: L2TP IPsec support for native Windows, Mac OS X, iPad and Android clients with no per-user licensing fees


    • Built-in DHCP, NAT, QoS, and VLAN management services.
    • Web caching: accelerates frequently accessed content.
    • Load balancing: combines multiple WAN links into a single high- speed interface, with policies for QoS, traffic shaping, and failover.
    • Smart connection monitoring: automatic detection of layer 2 and layer 3 outages and fast failover, including 3G/4G USB modems.

    SD-WAN Made Simple

    • Software-defined WAN is a new approach to network connectivity that lowers operational costs and improves resource us- age for multisite deployments to use bandwidth more efficiently. This allows service providers to offer their customers the highest possible level of performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy.

    Cloud Managed Architecture

    • Built on Cisco Merakis award-winning cloud architecture, the MX is the industrys only 100% cloud-managed solution for Unified Threat Management (UTM) and SD-WAN in a single appliance. MX appliances self-provision, automatically pulling policies and configuration settings from the cloud. Powerful remote management tools provide network-wide visibility and control, and enable administration without the need for on-site networking expertise.
    • Cloud services deliver seamless firmware and security signature updates, automatically establish site-to-site VPN tunnels, and provide 24x7 network monitoring. Moreover, the MXs intuitive browser-based management interface removes the need for expensive and time-consuming training.
    • For customers moving IT services to a public cloud service, Meraki offers a virtual MX for use in Amazon Web Services, enabling Auto VPN peering and SD-WAN for dynamic path selection.
